This is a small (7 tables) restaurant which we booked by phone from the UK a few days before our visit. This is a family run establishment where the atmosphere is quite relaxed. Wife is front of house while husband is in the kitchen. We chose the set menu, 4 courses plus coffee, with pairing wines (Only available if the... More

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Bruges as a special farewell meal so we were willing to push the boat out. It is a bit difficult to find and first impressions are that it is a bit stuffy and overly formal; very silver service. However that impression is misleading as actually we found the atmosphere very relaxed.... More

My boyfriend and I visited De Stove for dinner on a Saturday night and it was beautiful - clean elegant venue and the friendly welcome. A small restaurant with front of house run by erica and the chef gino. We went for the set menu with accompanying wines - which was great value. The starter was lemon sole with watercress... More

We tried this place on a Sunday afternoon. Its a nice cosy place with good personal service and the food is good, as is the wine. But it does come at a price. Worth a visit if you dont mind spending the money. We are glad we tried it.

We booked this on the basis of the ratings. Nice, small restaurant but hugely overrated. Most dishes would be rated as very average. Our dishes lacked seasoning and flavour was nothing special. Venison dish was little better than the rest. Price is medium to high compared to other restaurants in Bruges.

De Stove is a charming little restaurant, very comfortable and prettily decorated. We were excited to try it, based on the rave reviews, and were thrilled to secure a table. As with most popular venues in Bruges, booking is crucial as many potential diners without reservations were turned away at the door. Unfortunately the food was a bit of a... More

Liked: Food was great although quite pricey like the rest of Bruges Nice family run restaurant. Great selection of food and drink. Disliked: Lighting was very bright and probably detracted from atmosphere a bit.
